Windswept

By MEM
There was no wind blowing at the time this photo was taken, it's the way the bushes have grown over time due to the natural elements, the photo was taken early in the morning at Penhale sands when the mist from the Atlantic Ocean was starting to roll in, just a little later than yesterdays upload.

Penhale Sands, or Penhale Dunes is a complex of sand dunes and a protected area for its wildlife, situated on the north Cornwall coast, Penhale Sands are the highest sand dunes in Britain at 90 metres above sea level at their highest point,and are the largest sand dune system within Cornwall with a maximum depth of 48 metre (157 ft) of sand, the dunes are thought to have been formed over 5000 years ago when sands began to build up on a rocky plateau.

The sands are located 5 miles (8.0 km) south-west of the town of Newquay, in the civil parish of Perranzabuloe, stretching for over 2.5 miles (4.0 km) between Perranporth in the south and Hollywell to the north, with the Atlantic Ocean and Perran Beach to the west. The system, of over 1,000 hectares (2,500 acres), extends for more than 1 mile (1.6 km) inland.
